According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 884 million people do not have access to safe water. As a result, more than 1.4 million children die each year from water-borne illnesses, and every 20 seconds a child dies from harmful parasites and bacteria.
You can give clean water to a child’s entire family by providing a water filter as well as training on how to properly use and care for the filter. Portable filters allow families and children living in poverty around the world an opportunity to have clean water in their own home. Having access to clean water is a simple way to truly change the life of a child.
